Simple Solutions: How to freeze summer berries

In this episode of Ideal Home’s Simple Solutions we show you how to freeze summer berries.

Step 1: Chop strawberries into large pieces and rinse together with a tub of blueberries.

Step 2: Air-dry both the berries

Step 3: Use a metal tray (check if it fits your freezer first) and line with baking paper to stop the fruit sticking

Step 4: Separate the berries to prevent clumping and freezer for one hour

Step 5: Afterwards transfer the berries to freezer bags and remove as much air as possible

Step 6: Label and return to the freezer

A quick serving suggestion – place 3 or 4 berries on a skewer and place into a jug of Pimms! It’s much better than ice cubes!
